Overall this trip was absolutely fantastic. To begin, the tour was incredibly well organized, although we had to make several changes to our plans, Mr. Joseph was flexible to our needs and was always simply an email away. There is so much to do in Flores, we saw something new every day from Komodo Dragons to bats to hot springs. So, it is definitely worth it to do a longer tour to see as much of the island as possible because although there is so much to see in Komodo National park, the entire island has so much to offer as well. In particular, if you are looking for a less touristy get away this is the place to go. However, the best part of the trip was our tour guide, Elvis, he was absolutely amazing. It seemed as if he had an answer to every one of our questions. Since he was a manggarai himself he learned so much about the traditions within the villages. He made the trip incredibly personal too, when he found out one of us loves to bake he stopped at a bakery to get us local cakes to taste and we also shared stories from our respective cultures. You could tell that he really cared about us and wanted to make the trip as enjoyable as possible. By the end of the trip we all definitely considered Elvis our friend rather than a tour guide. Along with Elvis, we also had a driver who undoubtedly made the trip flow incredibly smoothly as well. Despite the windy roads in Flores, our drives were always relaxing. Some tips for those that want to adventure through Flores would be that if you want to do more hiking, there are a lot of volcanoes that you can hike and we unfortunately missed them because we didn’t know about them. There are also a lot of caves around Labuan Bajo to see if you want to spend more time in that area. Lastly, it really is worth spending a significant time snorkeling in the area because the marine life was incredible especially the corals.
